If you’ve never picked up a cello before and you wished to, or if you had picked it up and wanted a refresher, this class is for you. We’ll be working out of Suzuki Book 1 for cello. We’ll be going through material the same way an orchestral section goes through a musical part. A fun and enjoyable way to play cello with others! No audition required. You just have to have a cello, a music stand, and Suzuki Book 1 at each class. And on a rotating schedule, each class member should plan to bring a little snack to share during the break. Nothing fancy – cookies, fruit, cake, or any kind of non alcoholic beverage.
